“This year has been a particularly challenging one for people right around the world and it is important that we continue to promote health education and raise awareness among Qatar’s population of these important health issues.”

“I encourage you to register for these sessions which will also offer attendees the opportunity to ask specific questions which will be answered by the experts,” Al Khater added.

The educational webinars include the following:
